Monday’s issue is our last of the year. The News section features a report from Bowker’s PubTrack showing a spike in e-book sales in weeks ahead and international bestseller lists. In Retailing, we look at the “other 12 days of Christmas,” when consumers use gift cards to buy books in large numbers. There’s a new piece from Cory Doctorow on “Zen and the Art of Self-Publishing,” a feature on books on personal finance, children’s “Flying Starts,” and a profile of Jonathan Evison, author of West of Here. Finally, a supplement on self-publishing features reviews and features on that area of the business.
